Electric One

One of the few albums that was created and released specifically for the Pickwick label, this is the great LP of all-Moog music that I first discovered of at FaLaLaLaLa! I don't think he's sharing it out anymore, so I'm sharing out my copy tonight.  The music here is great, if the whole thing is a bit short.  And if you'll bear with me for a while, I've got another reason for sharing it, but I've got to finish it up first.  In the meantime, please download Sy Mann-Switched On Santa!-The Merriest Moog Synthesizer Plays Christmas Favorites (Pickwick SPCX-1007, Stereo, 1969).  And isn't that Jean Jacques Perrey as Santa on the cover?

1. Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer
2. Jingle Bells
3. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
4. Tijuana Christmas
5. My Favorite Things
6. The Little Drummer Boy
7. Christmas Bells
8. White Christmas
9. Joy To The World
10. When Christmas Comes
11. Angels We Have Heard On High
12. Silent Night
13. What Child Is This

Can't believe there's no comments on this one yet...this is an AWESOME post, Ernie...the copy I had was 'incomplete' so you just 'filled up my stocking' with the rest of my Moog Christmas...and as a lover of 70's prog rock, I miss the sounds of the Mini-Moog in music...I still am on the hunt to buy one of my own...Rick Wakeman's as well as Keith Emerson's Christmas cds are regular staples around my place...

Just got this one, Ernie, and big haaorahs for it. I think this was my very first Christmas digital download, and the copy I have is about 2-1/ kbps I am delighted to have a better copy. As a moog fan, I even took electronic music class in college in 1976 when the little school I attended splurged on a synth and had a music perfesser trained to teach it. They paid a tidy sum for it. It's funny that two years ago I bought my musician-son a mini-Moog from for less than the price of a game system, and we love working on it.

I agree with Anon, and any holiday synth or electronic Christmas gets play time over egg nog here. Thanks again, Ernie!!!

Both links are gone. I'd love to hear this one as well. Hope it gets re-uploaded this Christmas season.
